07/15   I don't get s/key... isn't soda supposed to issue an s/key
        challenge when I ftp into soda?
        \_ You must be this tall to use skey
        \_ You have to set up your key first.  see man skey(1)
                \_ http://soda.CSUA.Berkeley.EDU% man skey(1)
                   Badly placed ()'s.
                   \_ You must be this tall to use man
                   \_ "skey(1)" means to type "man 1 skey" -- it looks up skey
                      in manual section 1 (user commands).  The section number
                      is optional, but it matters if there are two manpages
                      with the same name -- for example, printf(1) tells you
                      about the "printf" command-line utility, but printf(3)
                      tells you about the C library function.
                        \_ SONOFABITCH!! I can't believe someone actaully posted
                           a usefull and non-insulting reply!! Surely the motd
                           gods will banish you for eternity! You asked for it!
                   \_ man skey

7/15    Is anyone else besides me beginning to suspect
        s/key is one of the worst documented things
        ever to have been invented?  Why wonder
        why Microsoft is taking over, they
        understand it's important to make something
        easy to install and run out of the box

7/15    MSFT wins the case against Bristol.  Stock at another all time high.
        Market cap tops $500 billion dollars. I would like to personally
        thank Bill Gates for making me a multimillionaire.
                - proud shareholder of MSFT for the last 10 years
        \_ Eat me. - proud shareholder of AMZN for the last 10 months

7/15    Abstraction barrier.  I don't wanna know how s/key works.  I just want
        a WinNT FTP client that supports it.  URL?
        \_ s/key works by using an MD4 algorithm.  If you don't want to
           know how things work I suggest you pick a different major
           other than engineering or computer science.
        \_ You need to run keyinit on soda.  You'll need some luck to find
           a GUI FTP client that hides S/Key details from you.
